More information about this administrative service.
A new licence number must be requested immediately after a move (change in primary place of residence) or business relocation to another licensing area. The change must be entered in the registration certificate Part II (vehicle title), and a new registration certificate Part I (vehicle registration) requested.
Only motor vehicles that meet certain minimum requirements with regard to their pollutant emissions are allowed to drive in the designated environmental zones. To prove this, the vehicle must have a corresponding environmental badge, also known as a particulate matter badge.
In specially marked areas, parking is only permitted with a special permit. The so-called resident parking permit is issued upon application.
If an approved vehicle is sold, the sale must be reported to the Landesbetrieb Verkehr. This notification must be made immediately.
Air cleanliness plans exist in areas with poor air quality. Environmental zones are possible measures under these plans. Environmental zones reduce dust and nitrogen dioxide emissions. Vehicles with high levels of harmful emissions are not permitted to be driven in environmental zones.
If you buy a vehicle which is already registered, you must immediately have the registration transferred to your name, should you use the vehicle on public roads.
